1.5 Proprietary Rights
The trademarks, service marks, logos, and domain names referenced on the Sites are either common-law service marks or trademarks, or registered service marks or trademarks of Vendr (collectively, the “Marks”) and are protected by Applicable Laws. Other names of actual companies and products mentioned on the Sites may be the trademarks of their respective owners and reference to them does not suggest sponsorship, endorsement, or association with Vendr, other than that they may have been given access to the Sites and the Online Community. No logo, graphic, sound, or image from the Sites may be copied or re-transmitted unless expressly permitted in writing by Vendr. Nothing contained on the Sites should be construed as granting any license or right to use any of Vendr’s Marks or its affiliates’ or suppliers’ trade names, trademarks or service marks without Vendr’s express prior written consent in each instance.
1.6 Copyright Infringement Claims
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials found on the Sites infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send Vendr a notice requesting that Vendr remove the material. If you believe in good faith that someone has wrongly filed a notice of copyright infringement against you, the DMCA permits you to send Vendr a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA. See https://www.copyright.gov/ for details. Vendr suggests that you consult legal counsel before filing a notice or counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices should be sent to:
